Las Luchadoras Group's story

This group is called ”Las Luchadoras” [Tenacious Women] and is in its fourth cycle. They chose this name because all members are hardworking women who struggle to grow and help their families. They have taken part in a poverty reduction survey and three of them were found to be living below the poverty line.

One of the group’s members is Mrs. Emilia, who works hard to increase her income. She is in level one, and she is conscious that in order to grow, she will have to work hard. She says that she sells all types of foods and that this is her way of improving. She is trying as hard as she can, which is something laudable.

Mrs. Emilia is requesting a loan to buy bakery products, meat and lettuce, which will help her to realize her business plan, improve her income and serve her customers better.

In this group: Ciriaca, Blanca, Elena, Salvadora, Liz, Obtaciana, Julia, Emilia, Maida, Noelia, Nancy, Maria, Lissi
